Three people were threatened with a knife and locked in a cellar during a late-night raid on an Oxfordshire pub.

Police said three men entered the Red Lion, in Abingdon Road, Drayton, at about 03:45 BST and woke the residents sleeping upstairs.

Two men and a woman were locked in a cellar at knifepoint while the burglars stole cash and two mobile phones.

A police spokeswoman said it was "a very frightening experience" and the victims were left "very distressed".
